Swedish Impressionism Part 3

Ref: C3680295

The Opponents can be likened to Swedish Impressionists, evolving new ways of depicting their world whilst concerned that their art should also contribute to a more enlightened society. Certain artists lives and work will be looked at in depth, especially Bruno Liljefors, considered by many to be the world's first Environmental Artist, and the mature careers of Carl Larsson and Anders Zorn, amongst other significant artists. This course will continue to present these artists in the context of their time, at the leading edge of Scandinavian art & society. Students may join the course at any time and attendance of the previous Parts 1 & 2 is not necessary.
